Instructions: To see a close up view of the umbrella click here. The Umbrella is 15"h and 12"w. Start by cutting 2 pieces of 9-12" of the Flowering Dogwood paper. Put the long side of both papers up on your scorboard and scor every 1/2". Then cut 2 pieces of 3-9" and put the small side up and scor them every 1/2". Now fold all of the pieces like a harmonica. Take one of the big pieces (front) and glue on each side a small piece, then glue the other side to the small pieces (back). Now get your glue gun and put glue in every fold on the bottom and squeeze that very good together. Do the same with the back and the sides. Make a circle of cardboard, put design paper on it, glue a filigrane ornament on that and glue the umbrella on top. Ink all the sides if you like with Vintage Photo. Cut 1 filigrane ornament in half and glue one piece on the bottom front and 1 on the bottom back. Decorate the whole umbrella as desired with lace, pearls, ribbon, and flowers.
For the flowers I used the Classic Rose, I stamped them with Versafine black and I colored them with the distress ink Picked Raspberry. The leaves I stamped with the Versafine black and colored them with memento Bamboo leaves. For the other flowers I used the Sunrise Lily and I stamped them with the Versamark and White embossing powder on Vellum and I colored them on the back with Picked Raspberry. Cut all the flowers out with the Coordinating dies. Now you can shape all the flowers, after this you can arrange them and hot glue them on your Umbrella. For the handle you take 2 long sturdy flower stamens and then you wrap this in the silver washitape, shape a handle on top, make a bow and glue this on the handle, and done!
